Services of Hope Market provides emergency food and personal items to people in need and children in need at schools. Our unique “client choice” food distribution model means families could choose some of their favorite foods. Your donation helps ensure we have a broader selection available.
We host a Monday Mobile Market every Monday. We go to areas in the Food Desert (an urban area in which it is difficult to buy affordable or good-quality fresh food ) set up our trucks to replicate an area similar to a farmer’s market. We provide stable pantry items to meat and fresh fruits and vegetables at no cost to the client. We try to make it possible for the families are prepared to put together a family-friendly healthy meal when they leave the market.
Services of Hope has a second distribution session every Thursday afternoon inviting clients to select some items on their own at our office Pantry shopping area. We do our best to stock the products most needed and wanted by families. Thanks to our generous donors, our families come away with many items to assist them to save an average of 50 to 100 dollars on their budget and place those funds on bills and housing.
Following is a list of food and personal care items that are most in need right now. If you are collecting some things on your own, or participating in a food drive, we hope you will include items on this list.
Please remember and consider buying modest size products (e.g. a few 8 oz containers of Peanut butter are preferable to one 64 oz. container).
Do you own or manage a store, restaurant, or other retail establishment? Or find yourself with gift cards you are unlikely to use after a holiday or birthday? Consider making a tax-deductible contribution in the form of a gift card. We welcome restaurant and retail gift cards, along with certificates for spa services and house cleaning. These are used for raffle prizes at events for our families.
